  • Side Plates
  • The big storm coming to Wisconsin has me thinking about my snow plows. Does anybody have the Dearborn angle dozer side plates(pn 190055) that they would like to sell, or just send me a tracing of the outline, and I will make my own. I would like them to look factory, or I would just wing it. Same thing for the snow blade(pn 190044 and 190058).I'm looking for cables, or a sample to duplicate for the 19-1 universal frame also.I'm not just trying to make it work. That's easy.They already work. I want them to look as factory as possible. There is a place in St. Paul that can swedge the cables, but they couldn't get the correct ends anymore.

  • I have 2 original cables for a J1 you can have. One is longer than the other and was shortened by by a cable clamp. ( don't know why- may have been a replacement for an 8N hookup). I had new ones swedged in Grand Rapidis using course threads instead of fine thread.
    I have an operators manual that shows a picture of the side plates and braces. Maybe by comparison to picture of blade, you could determine its demensions for cutting out of plate steel.
    My email is open.
    I push all the snow I desire, without side plates, with loaded tires and tire logging chains on my 2N with sherman 2 speed xmission.

  • Went by my friend and the one he has is for the 19-3 snowplow blade. It is a different height the the dozer blade and attaches on the front of the blade. The one for the dozer blade attaches to the side and would be easier to make.

  • Re: Side Plates
  • Thanks Kirk, I've got both blades. I usually use the dozer blade because it is lighter and steers easier in the up position. I've got an area about 75x100 feet between the house and shed that I clear that would probably go faster with side plates, but then I would have to remove them to do the 1,000 foot driveway. I get a lot of seat time, but I am getting more serious about a plow truck. Heat and a wind break would be nice.
    Thanks again.

  • A friend of mine has the side plate. I know he's off today so I'll give him a call. I remember it's off the blade. Don't remember if he has the top brace.

  • HiYa Kent-
    The side plates are Dearborn p/n 1900056 -see MPC from our Manuals forum -LINK below and download yourself a copy; it's free. Those part are rare as hen's teeth to find and no longer serviced, meaning no longer made. As with many Dearborn parts, they have no ID logo or part numbers. Thus when farmers stored them in their barns they no doubt got scrapped out or sold at auction if a person had no clue as to what they were for. The MPC listed here will get you an idea as to approx size and shape so you can fab your own. I've only seen one original set and may have belonged to Zack Smith. You can also add to those mystery parts the OEM skid shoes and guide wheel assembly that were dealer options too.

  • Re: Side Plates
  • Hey Tim,
    Thanks for the response even if it wasn't what I wanted to hear. Seems like I'm always looking for the hard stuff to find. I do have a set of OEM skid shoes and brackets that came on one of the dozer blades. They would be pretty hard to duplicate though as they are made of some pretty thick stuff and bending it around would be a challenge. I'll just settle on making brackets for the skids from Fleet Farm. Much easier,and just as functional. I'll probably just eyeball a pattern for the side plates too. Thanks again, Kent S.

  • Re: Side Plates
  • I bought truck blade skids, and fabbed mounts. They don't work worth a dam with spring mounted in snow blade position. (the blade tilts leaving the skids high and dry and then you plow unfrozen gravel. Instead I put a clevis on drawbar and an adjustable chain to top link hookup. Can set blade height at 1 " above ground and go like hell without breaking frame. ( also fabbed spring mounts from a truck blade for use of snow plowing. I won't even consider side plate as I angle the blade and hit it straight on at 8MPH. Got video to show it and maybe on YT site you can find it with my posts.
    I welded 1/4" X 1' strap steelaround pipes at at cross pipe weld, for added strength ( tried to bulldoz to many 16" tree logs).
    Hope the above post helps others.
